There are some very choice deals this week at Walgreens, and I squeezed in a trip to get them. I planned to get some Bic razors as well, but I forgot my coupons, my 20x perk expires today, and I had time to spare to go home for the Bic coupons.
FYI – There is a promotion in the ad to get a Catalina checkout coupon for 10x Everyday Points when you redeem points in a transaction. The coupon is supposed to print from the Register Rewards machine at checkout. This promotion was advertised in last week’s ad as well, but the coupon did not print for me in two attempts last week. I tried again this week in a small initial transaction in which I redeemed points to pay, but still didn’t get the 10x coupon. The cashier called the manager up, and he said he would add the points into my transaction since the coupon didn’t print. He gave me 10,000 points to compensate for the missing 10x coupon, which is factored into the final tally at the end of this post.
I also had a personal perk to earn 20x points on beauty and personal care purchases, a one-time use coupon valid for yesterday or today only. I used it on today’s transaction. Lastly, it’s still my birthday month, so the 5x Everyday Points multiplier gave me additional bonus points.
It’s Father’s Day, so I am taking the easy route and showing you specific points earned for each promotion and then the transaction points at the end.
